GenPhilly explored the often contradictory images about women & aging that are presented to us through the media, popular culture, and film.

In contrast to traditional social images of “the little old lady”, women today are creating new perceptions about what it means to grow older. Many contemporary women continue to juggle work, family responsibilities, a social life, and social activism as they age, and are appearing more frequently in the public eye as sexy, strong and independent figures.

  1. Women & Aging: Image(R)evolution event makes the press! Check out this article written in Milestones e-News:

  2. Women are definitely aging differently than 10…15…30 years ago. Check out the AARP The Magazine article, “What Women Want: Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Betty White on sex, love, and …. staying hot “

    “[Betty] White: The less you worry about it, the less you think about it. There was a period when you were considered over the hill if you were older than 14.”
